"We know how tough she is," Conway added, saying she wishes Ginsburg a "full and speedy recovery."

Ginsburg fractured three ribs on her left side after falling in her office Wednesday night, according to the Supreme Court's Public Information Office. She is being treated at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C.

Ginsburg was appointed to the court by former President Clinton in 1993. She is widely adored among Democrats and progressives for her liberal court opinions, and many have expressed concerns about her health given her age.

At an event in July, Ginsburg said she hopes to remain on the high court for at least five more years.

"My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years," she said at the time.
